Syntax

Update-DPMProtectionGroup
      [-ProtectionGroup] <ProtectionGroup>

Description

The Update-DPMProtectionGroup cmdlet updates the protection group configuration to capture changes to protected data sources in System Center 2016 - Data Protection Manager (DPM). This cmdlet modifies the protection group without changing any settings to reflect changes to protected data sources.

Examples

Example 1: Update a production group

PS C:\>$PGroup = Get-DPMProtectionGroup -DPMServerName "DPMServer02"
PS C:\> $PObject = Get-DPMDatasource -ProtectionGroup $PGroup
PS C:\> Update-DPMProtectionGroup -ProtectionGroup $PGroup -Datasource $PObject[0] -Inquire

The first command gets the protection group on the DPM server named DPMServer02, and then stores the results in the $PGroup variable.

The second command gets the list of protected and unprotected data in the protection group in $PGroup. The command stores the results in the $PObjects variable.

The third command updates the protection group in $PGroup with a data source in $PObjects.
